Richard Skinner

Richard Skinner (May 30, 1778 – May 23, 1833) was an American politician, attorney, and jurist from the U.S. state of Vermont.

Skinner was born in Litchfield, Connecticut. He completed preparatory studies and graduated from Litchfield Law School, and was admitted to the bar in 1800, beginning a practice in Manchester, Vermont. In 1801, he became the state attorney for Bennington County, a position he held until 1813.

From 1805 to 1813, Skinner was a probate judge for the Manchester district; in the 1812 elections, he was elected as a Democratic-Republican to the U.S. House of Representatives for Vermont's new created 5th District. Skinner served a single two-year term (the 13th Congress) from March 4, 1813, to March 3, 1815. Skinner lost in the 1814 election to the 14th Congress and returned to Vermont to resume the practice of law.
